Megan Fox has said people assume she is a superficial and self-centred person who lacks self-awareness because of her appearance.

The 30-year-old American actress and model said that no matter how articulate she is or however well-meaning her motives are, individuals continue to project their desires on to her.

Fox said this leaves her with little autonomy as she essentially becomes a “human sacrifice”. 

“I think people, in general, are plebeians that are brainwashed by the type of media that they expose themselves to ...,” she told the Los Angeles Times.

“People anticipate a shallowness [from me],” she continued. “They anticipate a self-centeredness and a lack of self-awareness. It doesn't ... matter what I say, or how eloquent a speaker I may be, or how positive my intentions may be.”

“I'm going to be made into what people desire me to be. At this moment, they might desire to exalt me onto a pedestal. But the next? You're a human sacrifice. The control is not in my hands.”

The mother-of-two, who is known for her roles in Transformers and New Girl, also said she was really keen to work for Vice as a journalist.

“If I ended up working for Vice, that would be a dream. I don’t know how that could ever work, but I do have a little bit of a journalistic streak and I’m also reckless enough to do well in that field, I think.”
